Ngatit Porou ki Poneke
Ngati Porou ki Poneke is the official taurahere for the Wellington area.
Our primary focus is to grow and strengthen community at a social, cultural and political level.
E tipu e rea mo ngā rā o tō ao
Ko tō ringa ki ngā rākau ā te Pakeha Hei ara mō tō tinana
Ko tō ngākau ki ngā tāonga a ō tīpuna Māori
Hei tikitiki mō tō māhuna
Ko tō wairua ki tō Atua, Nānā nei ngā mea katoa
Don’t just grow, thrive!
Ta AT Ngata
It was an impressive turnout of more than 70 people who turned up at different times to our first Ngati Porou Reo Wananga 2019, held at Horouta Marae on 2 and 3 March. The focus was on learning and practicing whaikorero, karanga and waiata and then delivering everything we’d learnt at a ‘mock’ live powhiri. Frightening! Exhilarating! Highly emotional.
